Mobile Coca-Cola has sponsored McKemie Place this year through water donations to the day shelter, as well as beverage donations for this event.  The McKemie Place – Build Hope was a fundraiser for McKemie Place where food, drinks and entertainment were provided and a silent auction was held of items from local businesses.  This event was held to raise funds to help provide shelter for homeless women.  McKemie Place feeds and houses these women and provides the life skills, job and financial training to get them back on their feet.
